A JavaWorld article titled ebXML: Not just another acronym sums up ebXML and the apparent disconnect between the W3C and OASIS. This disconnect is not a rivalry or competing effort. It's based on the fact that the W3C is not directly involved in an area that, in my opinion, should have their involvement. I have another opinion about this: there is an inevitable marriage between OASIS and W3C with respect to ebXML, hence, my theme:
Something Old. ebXML roots in XML can be clearly seen in Robin Cover's 29 January 2002 piece titled Electronic Business XML Initiative.... and a silver sixpence in her shoe. Welcome back Linda!
Something New. If ebXML is a new term to you read Romin Irani's 11 July 2001 article titled An Introduction to ebXML (Collaborative Electronic Business is here to stay), and also go to the source: OASIS. If you've been following my entries on security in Postcards from the Revolution, then you'll certainly want to examine the XML-Based Security Page on the OASIS site.
Something Blue. When IBM gets into the picture you begin to take things seriously. Big Blue's XML Zone has a well-written article from June 2001 titled Understanding ebXML Untangling the business Web of the future that fully describes ebXML.
